Subject: Connection to Siemens S7 PLC

Hello everybody,

I'm new to EPICS and I am planning to control Siemens Simatic S7-200 PLC. I have looked in EPIC documentation and found at least two ways to connect the PLC:

1. via MODBUS (Asyn) driver over the serial connection (using Siemens MODBUS RTU library)
2. using S7plc driver via TCP/IP and a CP 243-1 Ethernet module.

The programming of the PLC is done using Step-7 Micro/WIN V4.0. Unfortunately I can't open the example STEP 7 PLC project (for S7plc driver) in Step-7 Micro/WIN.

Do you have any experience with such a configuration or maybe with S7-1200? Are there any better options?

Thanks,
  Konrad
